There is a T.V. in Farm that plays messages upon activating it in a certain way. To play messages, one must hold the use button before turning on the power, turn the power on again and press the use button the hear the messages. TranZit is the first map to use a T.V. for messages instead of radios or film reels.

Jackass Flats: "Hello! Hello! This is Jackass Flats calling any human community within broadcasting distance. We are located at standard map coordinates, 37 degrees, 07 North. 116 degrees, 03 West. This is a warning to anyone contacted by a group of mysterious voices. Several of our party began to hear the voices and their competing instructions and incompatible demands drove a wedge down the center of the camp. Half of the camp is carrying out the demands of...

Flesh Man: "What's that?"
Voice is heard in background.
Flesh Man: "Who's there? Yes, I can hear you. Of course I have, there's nothing else. No, I won't do that. How do I know you're not lying? You could be making that all up. Sure, that only makes sense. Do...kill one. But... No, no I see, sure. Really? They're my friends. Yes.. Of course I see now. I'll do it. I'll do it for you. For you and the FLESH!"

Spire Man: "Your calculated works...and your sinister agents. You... you mean to destroy this planet and kill us all! Haha! We're not going to help. No way, no how.

He turned on the rest of us and shot one member of our crew and wounded another before we restrained him. Hello? Hello? Damn this thing, why doesn't it answer when we call it. HELLO?"
